The work on the Crazy Horse mountain carving in progress has grown far more complex since the days Korczak climbed a hand-built wooden stairway after firing up his ancient Buda Compressor.
It takes a wide array of equipment to continue moving the progress forward on the mountain.
Your gifts play an important role in keeping the mountain crew supplied with the tools and equipment they need.
Over the years, many generous individuals and corporations have donated equipment to be used by the mountain crew, some of it custom-made especially for the mountain carving work.
As the work progresses and older equipment wears out, newer equipment and gear will always be needed by the mountain crew.
Your help would be very much appreciated!
